Thirsty Thursday: Michelada

This week I’ve decided to go with the Michelada.  Many of you may never have heard of this drink, but it’s delicious!  Think of it as a Spicy Mexican Beer.  I was even able to drink this, while pregnant, because I would replace the beer with non-alcoholic beer, and it would taste almost the same.  Many Mexican restaurants serve Micheladas, but it really depends on the place.  I know a lot of you will read this and think it sounds gross, but it actually tastes very similar to a Spicy Bloody Mary.  Don’t knock it, till you try this one.


1 ice cold Mexican beer: Corona or Negra Modela (or really any beer works)
2 tablespoons of course salt

1 tablespoon of chili powder
2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
1-2 dashes of your favorite hot sauce
1 dash of soy sauce
1 dash of Worcestershire sauce
Black pepper
Lime wedge for garnish

1. Mix together the salt and chili powder on a small plate. Rim a beer glass with a little lime juice and then dip in the salt and chili mixture to cover the top of the glass.
2. Fill mug with ice (yes, ice in a beer is popular in Mexico and other parts of Latin America).
3. Add lime juice, hot sauce, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and a pinch of black pepper.
4. Slowly pour in beer. The salt on the rim will cause the beer to foam up, so be careful while adding beer.
5. Stir. Enjoy.

If you’d like a spicier beverage, you can add more hot sauce or chili powder. Every restaurant seems to have their own variation on this beverage and you can change all the proportions of the quantities depending on your own tastes.

And while sipping this spicy concoction, I’d love to be wearing this!  Channeling a Mexi-Cali vibe.

I’m in love with this ensemble.  Fall weather please get here soon – just stay awhile this year.
The climate here usually goes straight from hot weather to cold – never much of a cool season…
…unless you’re up and at ’em around 6 in the morning.
